It was a slow news day for all things NFT, but many of the concurrent stories that have dominated headlines throughout the week thus far have continued on their journeys, as we spectate the progression of MoonBirds, as well as the NBA’s struggling ‘The Association’ project, and more.
Thank goodness it’s Thursday, headed into Friday, with another Nightly Mint.
The Nightly Mint
Latest Mint: MoonBird Criticism
MoonBirds were criticized from the jump about their high mint price, and that isn’t slowing down one bit. There’s increased criticism over the last day regarding MoonBirds being gifted to celebrities and influencers. Nonetheless, price action around the project still remains strong, as the floor is now surged strongly above 30ETH, and volume within the project is still far above any other NFT collection currently. The floor over the past 24 hours (at time of publishing) has risen by over 35%, according to Nansen’s NFT data.
Moonbirds themselves are not to blame, but the mental effects & discouragement in result, is real. High mint price, while everyone else is struggling. Influencers showing off. It’s really taking the inclusiveness away from NFTs. If you’re reading this, just know you aren’t alone.
